This electrifying action sequel unleashes the deadly invisible Predator in another jungle -- the urban jungle of Los Angeles. Danny Glover stars as a lieutenant who mistakenly concludes that mangled bodies found by the police are the work of feuding gangs. Instead, he finds himself confronting a savage alien who has come from a distant world to hunt humans for sport. Gary Busey and Ruben Blades co-star in this suspense-packed, high-tech thriller.
Predator wreaked havoc in the jungle and struck box-office gold, so Hollywood logic dictated that Predator 2 should raise hell in the big, bad city. Los Angeles, to be specific, and this near-future L.A. (circa 1997) is an ultra-violent playground for the invisibility-cloaked alien that hunted Arnold Schwarzenegger in the previous film. Scant explanation is given for the creature's return, and because Ah-nuld was busy making Total Recall, Danny Glover was awkwardly installed as the maverick cop (is there any other kind?) who defies a government goon (Gary Busey) to curtail the alien's inner-city killing spree. But why bother, when the victims are scummy Colombian drug lords? Don't look for intelligent answers; director Stephen Hopkins favors wall-to-wall action over sensible plotting, allowing Stan Winston's more prominently featured Predator to join the ranks of iconic movie monsters. And anticipating Alien vs. Predator in comic books and in theaters, there's a familiar-looking skull in the Predator's trophy case! --Jeff Shannon

this 1990 sequel Predator 2 has been given a new High Definition transfer in 1:85:1 widescreen by 20th century fox
and the picture quality does look much sharper & clearer than the old DVD release for sure
plus a new 5.1 Master audio mix has been added aswell which does sound much better than the old Dolby digital mix
it doesn't stop there either, all the special features from the 2 Disc DVD set have been carried over which i think is a miracle
usually 20th century fox don't bother making the effort to carry over all the extras when they're reissuing a film on blu-ray
for eg John McTiernan's PREDATOR film first blu-ray release was barebones treatment by 20th century fox
Predator had to be reissued twice on blu-ray for all the special features to be carried over
which is the ULTIMATE HUNTER EDITION
so for this sequel, i think fans are very lucky that all the special features from the 2 Disc DVD have been carried over for sure
THE HUNTERS & THE HUNTED 35min making of featurette
plus the small featurettes, EVOLUTIONS, WEAPONS OF CHOICE, HARD CORE SEGMENTS
the Promo stills Gallery
TV spots, Theatrical trailer
plus the 2 Audio commentary tracks from the DVD release have also been carried over
all this on 1 blu-ray Disc incredible
definitley time to upgrade get this new blu-ray version of Predator 2
5 stars i gave it based on all the extras carried over from the 2 Disc DVD set
LAPD is being overunned by violent street gang wars and in the midst of it all comes an uninvited guest looking to kill for the sport of it.
Danny Glover plays as the bad ass lieutenant Mike Harrigan along with his team: best friend Danny boy, Leona (Conchita Alonza), and Jerry (Bill Paxton) as the new recruit looking to make a name for himself. Also, Keyes (Gary Busey), an obsessed science researcher looking to catch the predator and recover its advanced weaponry.
Yeah, it's aged. But wow how little it kicks you out of the film. It gets slow when you know what is coming next all the time, but there were many actions segments that got me about 80% invested. Lots of improbables and liberties were taken with the laws of physics. For its era, it packed a smack. But, yeah, lots of stuff pretty much memorized and that wrung the work dry, but as a historical piece, if it's been decades, heck yeah, refresh your brains about it. It's a bookmarked moment in time for American culture, circa who cares watch it.
